It is a truth universally acknowledged that the most successful film adaptation (I'm talking about the film version released in Theaters/Cinemas not the TV Mini-series version) ofJane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Joe Wright's 2005Pride & Prejudice film (which was nominated for 4 Oscars including Best Actress for its lead star Keira Knightley; 2 Golden Globe including Best Actress nomination for Knightley; and 6 BAFTA nominations including The Carl Foreman Award for Special Achievement by a British Director) has the best ensemble cast. The main cast of P&P movie are incredible and multi-talented. Some of them have been working steady and continued to get recognized on
their own in various stage plays, television and film projects they've
done since their P&P movie was released a decade ago this month.
Here's a compiled list of what our favorite P&P main cast are
I was looking through old threads over at IMDB a while back and I found a link to the P&P 2005 movie script... from an awesome JA/P&Pfanfiction related site called, Mrs. Darcy's Story Site.
I've read the entire script from this site. It seemed accurate with deleted scenes included! (though there were spelling errors on some of the lines...just a lil' typo here and there)...
Btw, the webmistress at Mrs. Darcy's site has added her comments to the script comparing this draft with what was actually released on film, which I thought was quite interesting (especially the deleted scenes from the movie). It was a lot of fun to read. I thought I would keep the link and post it here (a lil' excerpt here) for those of you might be interested in reading this or have been looking for the P&P movie script/transcript online.
Here are a few deleted scenes that I found interesting (wish they were shown in the movie or in the dvd special features):
